The Beatles 1994 reunion: How New York's 'biggest rock event ever' never happened

Saturday, February 13, 2021

After The Beatles’ split, dozens of reports suggested they would eventually get back together for another collection of shows. On this day, February 13, 1994 the Mail on Sunday further fuelled speculation with an exclusive report saying the band were gearing up for a gig in New York City.

The report read: “The Beatles are getting back together for a one-off concert that will be the biggest rock event ever staged.

“The three surviving Beatles are set to play alongside John Lennon’s sons to a live audience of more than a million people.

“Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr will each earn £20 million for appearing on stage on the great lawn at Central Park in New York later this year.”

Although McCartney, Harrison and Starr were on good terms at the time, there was no official word that they were getting together again.
